Dec 7th, 2013 Elaaiun, Western Sahara An Initial Report on the Peaceful Demonstration

The Gdiam Izik  Platform organized a mass demonstration on  December 7th, 2013, at Smara Blvd. in Elaaiun, Western Sahara.  This peaceful demonstration was started to express the refusal and the rejection of developments concerning  the fisheries as Moroccan authorities distorted the facts and twisted the truth to  be able to get the new fisheries protocol signed and voted for. This is an attempt to renew the signing of the Convention on the fisheries agreement between Morocco and the European Union  that was originally discontinued when the  cross- vote  at the level of the European Parliament where the majority voted against it  in 2011, and argued that was  illegal due to the fact that Morocco lacked the sovereignty over the waters of Western Sahara 

Moroccan occupation forces besieged the demonstration as the auxiliary forces and the different agents of police forces and be it uniformed or plainclothes  began the attack on the peaceful protesters and dispersed the demonstration , and thus marking another chapter of a long term episode of oppression reinforcing the widely known malpractices as a common practice where Morocco considers human rights violations in Western Sahara as taken-for-granted culture.  Accordingly,  dozens of victims and injured Saharawis fell on-site because of the shameful ill-treatment  perpetrated by the Moroccan Police forces  masterminds of torture using  batons, stones and intimidation . The forces of occupation even tried to run over some of the peaceful protestants.
